Another Jam Handy short featuring off topics, and then cleverly tying them into Chevrolet Automobiles. This time it's about pressure. Ocean Pressure! Sky Pressure! Pressure in your vehicle! Everything that's everything can be tied back to your Chevrolet vehicle, Jam Handy will see to that.

Subject: Great short!
Interesting short about using engine vacuum to assist shifting gears. I'm pretty sure the actor is Robert Shayne (Inspector Henderson from the Superman TV series). Thanks to whoever contributed this film!
